Episode 445: Spring Previews #1

Tis a sad day for the Anime Pulse podcast, as news reaches us that not only is Ichigo being further sucked into the family man lifestyle but TC illness might very well force him out of the show. More on that as the week progresses, hopefully. Until then, Red is back with Ichigo to bring you some previews of the new anime season. First up is news however, with articles like 151 pokemon pancakes, Idols giving up their untouchable status to become mothers, and the villains in anime that would make the best friends. Then it’s onto the discussion thread, which has been sitting on the burner for two weeks so it’s a long one! If you could remove one animefrom your brain, which one would you remove? And finally a new season entails previews, as Ichigo and Red introduce a host of new shows they started watching. Continue reading Episode 445: Spring Previews #1

Episode 444: Utaha is Best Girl

Three 4’s in a row? Is that bad luck or something someplace? Probably. Thankfully we encounter no bad luck this episode, as everything goes on without a hitch. This week we get a guest from the 4PlayerAnimeCast, the podcast that recently had Red join them as a guest; SpireWrecker. After a brief introduction, it’s onto the show! Starting off with news as usually, with topics like Red’s obsession for Yanderes turning him into a kitchen knife salesman, a paternity board game that is sweeping Twitter, and a video series that teaches girls how to not show their panties by showing their panties. After news it’s onto a hotly debated discussion thread, who do you think is the best Swordsman sansthe supernatural and superhuman abilities? And to round out the season, Red and Spire give a lengthyjointreview ofSaenai Heroine no Sodatekata, better known as Saekano.

Episode 443: Hayate no Yatterman

He’s back ladies and gentlemen! TC hath return! Kind of… Waifu Reina takes the hot seat while TC plays backseat driver, she’s only been on a couple times before but she’s already a pro! After some talk about TC’s life and various topics, the crew jumps into news about what kind of gal twitter users in Japan prefer, horrible otaku fashion from the swedish, and active WWIIUSbombs still being found in Japan. After news a very small discussion thread is quickly run through, with either the fact it was such a niche question or the forums kept crashing the entire week; who is the best cosplayer you’ve ever seen? And finally it’s onto the reviews. Reina kicks things off with yoru no yatterman, and Red rounds out the show with the final season of Hayate no Gotoku.

Episode 442: Ghost in the Bizarre Adventure

Another week and another episode of Anime Pulse. Once again TC is out of commission, and will be taking what he calls an “extended leave of absence” until he feels (or more importantly, his wife feels) like he can return. For now, we have another guest from the community joining Red; Digitani. After a brief introduction, Red and Digi get into news about Tower Burgers, panty stealing ex-baseball players, and lonely middle school teachers who accidentally expose their porn stash to their students. Then it’s into the discussion thread, this week’s question was all about the gags. What anime has your favorite running gag? And then it’s onto reviews! Digi steps in first with a lengthy review of the new Ghost in the Shell series Arise, then Red wraps things up with a disappointed look at the second season ofJojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Episode 441: .hack//Stage!!

No Ichigo? No TC? What’s a poor RedUnit to do!? (Mess up the episode number, that’s what!) Well if your as witty, intelligent, and handsome as him you’ll have no trouble finding a guest host to be your wing man. That’s right, this episode we have the angriest of thinkers, TheMadPhilosopher, as our first ever official guest host. After a brief introduction to our guest, it’s onto the show! First up is news, with articles like Sugar Diamonds for your lucky lady, festivals in Japan still going despite the risk of a third eye, and Hawaiian Pancakes at Japanese McDonalds are doing rather well. Then it’s into the discussion thread for this week, as the question of what giant mech/robot/suit would you like to pilot? And finally the reviews. MadPhilosopher starts us out with a review of .hack//Sign, where 2002 thought 1990 thought 2005 would be like. Time humor! And Red wraps things up by describing his first venture into the world of Yaoi with Love Stage; he will never be the same man again.

Episode 440: Black Maria the Virgin Butler

Ever have one of those shows where you started three times over, finally think you’ve solved the problems, only to find out as you are editing the show that everything went horribly wrong? Yeah, this is that kind of show. TC talked about seriously buying a new microphone to upgrade his old equipment handed down by Ichigo, and Red thinks thats’s a really good idea, like, today. Alas, dear listeners, you will need to put up with this terrible quality for this weeksshow. After a brief talk about the passing of Leonard Nimoy, TC and Red jump into news with talks about body pillows that don’t like to be touched, McDonalds Japan trying to be more like a Starbucks, and tropes that even female anime watchers are sick and tired of. Then Red ushers in the discussion thread, bringing up the question of what makes an anime an anime? And finally it’s into reviews. Red kicks it off with the fujoshi bait Black Butler – Book of Circus, and TC with Wife bring up the rear with the not-so-virgin Maria the Virgin Witch.

Episode 439: Dog Bullet

Hello everyone, this week the doctor of time, TC, has fallen ill once again and will be taking sick leave until further notice. However this does not mean you’ll have to put up with Red’s drunk behavior, well, you still have to put up with that but he’s at least not alone. The man behind AP, Ichigo, is back to deliver you some news and reviews. Red and Ichigo start off the show filling you in on udon for your dog, the top ten manga they’ve never heard of that others want animated, and sakura petals in your beer. Then it’s onto the discussion thread, were the question of visual novels came up. Have you ever played one before? And finally it’s more reviews, as Red takes many showers after watchingBlack Bullet and Ichigo pets adorably cute animal girls in Dog Days”.

Episode 438: Kanojo Collection

Perhaps we should just change the title of this podcast to “Red drinks a lot, please someone stop him!” No? Oh well, I tried at least. This week Ichigo is still MIA, with no word on when we will be seeing his return to the show, so it’s just TC and Red as usual. The two of them kick off with some news about losing American habits in Japan, learning Canadian habits outside Japan, and Dragon Ball mugs with heart shaped Dominos Pizza. Then it’s onto the discussion thread, this week being asked what our favorite anime catchphrase is! Listen closely and see if you can count all the times Red flubbers his words. And finally it’s more reviews, TC sails away on the Kantai Collection while Red enters the Harem Matrix with Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara.

Episode 437: Rolling Actors

Are you ready for another episode of Anime Pulse? Because drunk Red and exasperated TC are here to bring it to you! First up is two helpingsof news. The normal news is first, with topics like Discotech continuing to license half the anime in the world, IKEA all-you-can-eat dessert buffets, and Ghoulish anime cafe collaborations. Then Red regales you with news about the website and the forums, pay attention if you’re a member of the site! This stuff is important! From there it’s into the weekly discussion thread, where this week we were asked to provide the best anime character breakdown. Finally it’s into reviews, as the previews have ended. Red is up first with the Shafted Mekaku City Actors, and TC brings up the rear with the bikini-clad Rolling Girls.

Episode 436: Winter Previews #3

This is it folks, the final week of previews. Next week will begin our return to reviews, so come on and catch episode three of the 2014/ 2015 winter previews. But first TC and Red talk news, covering topics like garlic cola, the slow death of Toonami, and burgers that you could feed a family of four with for a night. Then it’s onto this week discussion thread, were they answered the question of what animes you prefer to watch dubbed over subbed. Can you guess what Red’s answer was? And then final, it’s onto previews! TC has checked Isuca off the list, followed a nine year old into Yoru no Yatterman, and questioned the virginity of Junketsu no Maria. Red on the other hand is chalk full of second seasons as he explores Tokyo Ghoul long division A, wants to pet animalgirls in Dog Days”, and is fascinated by Durarara!! x 2. I hope you’re ready, because this show has serious depth.
